Juniperus rigida

ken_adrian Adrian MI cold Z5January 10, 2012

my gut tells me joy changed the name .. or added a cultivar name ... but i am too lazy to open the dB ....

i like the swamp monster effect ...

the needles are really sharp and will hurt you ...

in a lot of shade.. wonder if it would look different in full sun ... anyone else have pix???

We see a few of these in plantings here, including larger examples that have been in place for some time. See-through curtain appearance usual, lean to one side on the other hand might be a result of proximity of nearby trees.

Ouch :-((

Should've caged it if there's deer around. Did you try taking cuttings of any of the bits?

Ken I'm always amazed when I come on the site and see yet another plant posted by you. Just how many conifers are in your collection?

I won't be set up for cuttings until late March. Maybe I can pick up a few from Ken if I can find the time to make it up to Adrain.

Ken, your specimen isn't a Juniperus rigida but a Juniperus communis 'Oblonga Pendula'.
These are mixed up regulairy but the differences are visuable in needles and branches...if you'll take a closer look.
